Pope Francis

Pope Francis has taken 12 Syrian migrants back with him to the Vatican after visiting a camp on the Greek island of Lesbos.

The three families, including six children, are all Muslim and had their homes bombed during the Syrian war.

The Vatican said in a statement that Pope Francis wanted to “make a gesture of welcome” to the refugees.

Pope Francis has called for peace “above all” in Syria, Iraq and Nigeria during his traditional Easter Sunday message.
He urged the international community to address the “immense humanitarian tragedy” in war ravaged countries.
The Pope also called for peace in the Holy Land, Ukraine, Libya, Yemen,  Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
And he once again referred to the persecution of Christians in many countries.
